Industrial design is a multi-disciplinary field of study, which has a goal to create and object production. This can be done in combination with engineering and art fields. Industrial design study field aims to develop concepts and specifications of products and systems, optimize functionality, to improve appearance, which provide value and other benefits for users and manufacturers. Industrial designers must not only look into product functionality and appearance, but also they have to ensure user attractiveness and satisfaction of the product.
Our new International Doctorate Centre aims to deliver a revolutionary qualification for the 21st century.
The IDCORE is a partnership of the Universities of Edinburgh, Exeter, and Strathclyde, Scottish Association for Marine Science, and HR Wallingford.
The Industrial Doctorate Centre in Systems, a collaboration between Bristol and Bath universities, offers a four-year postgraduate research programme with a taught component. The EngD is intended for the UK's most able research engineers who will be tomorrow's industry leaders. An alternative to the PhD, the EngD is vocationally oriented to suit industry's needs. EngD students (Research Engineers) spend about 75% of their time working in a company on collaborative research projects.
The Doctorate Course on "Design and technologies for cultural heritage" promotes the training of new specialists able to integrate the various needs in design for the usage, valorization and management of cultural heritage.
The PhD deals with technical innovation in architecture, with particular regard to design (from conservation to transformation) and management of the built environment and to the manufacture of building elements.
The School of Architecture of the Politecnico di Milano, whose past lecturers include Gio Ponti, Franco Albini, Carlo De Carli and Vittoriano Viganò, has always stood out, at both national and international level, for its studies on living space, underpinned by a careful evaluation of interiors and by an awareness of the key role played by furniture within the complex system of relationships established with architectures and those who inhabit their spaces.
The Leaders for Technical Industries (LTI) doctoral program within the Engineering Design and Advanced Manufacturing (EDAM) focus area is offered by the Technical University of Lisbon (IST), University of Minho (UMinho) and the University of Porto (FEUP). This program is anchored on multidisciplinary research problems, lying within an Engineering Systems framework.
The overall objective of the graduate program in the department is to conduct fundamental research in industrial engineering and operations research in accordance with scientific and technological developments,
The goal of the doctoral study programme is to provide outstanding graduates from the MSc study programme with a specialised university education of the highest level. The education obtained within this study programme also comprises a training and attestation for scientific work.
This PhD project is part of a collaborative project called ALICE which aims to provide an experimental platform for research and design questions for achieving certain types of user experiences with mixed reality.
Starting from this tradition, the PhD programme in Design was established in 2008, as the result of a process of complete re-thinking of the way design was taught in the school at a PhD level in previous years.
The purpose of the course is to train aware professionals and researchers, committed to the production of conceptual and operative instruments for the design of contemporary living spaces while respecting historical values.
